The Future of A&E Ambulance Communications in Scotland with Terrafix

The Future of A&E Ambulance Communications

in Scotland with Terrafix


The Challenge

Connectivity for emergency services vehicles is of ever-growing importance and in vast rural regions this can prove difficult. Terrafix required an antenna to provide robust and reliable communications for the latest generation of 600 Front line A&E ambulances in mainland Scotland and the island communities, that would also enable the ability for future proofing new tech innovations. This required a series of high performing multi-function antennas to provide connection for the vehicle and the two in-vehicle rugged tablets that would operate Terrafix’s Mobilisation, Routing and Electronic Patient Report Software across all areas of Scotland.


The Antenna

LPMM-7-27 & LGMM-7-27-24-58

The installation required three separate antennas, two LPMM-7-27 with 2×2 MiMo cellular function and one LGMM-7-27-24-58 with 2×2 MiMo WiFi, 2×2 MiMo cellular and a GPS function. In total, these serviced the vehicle with nine separate antenna functions!

These were required to fulfil the four modems requested by the emergency service; these were all included in the T.AGG Terrafix Aggregator to which the antennas were connected.


The Client

Terrafix is the leading supplier of ICT and Mobile Data systems to the UK Ambulance Service, Security’s Services, Police and other emergency-based organisations. Terrafix supplies mission critical ICT solutions to enable the Emergency Services to deliver a seamless service, whilst reducing costs through increased operational efficiency.

Working together on several projects Panorama and Terrafix have provided excellent communications performance for emergencyservices across the UK.


The Solution

The three antennas were installed on over six hundred Front line A&E ambulances and are in service across Mainland Scotland and associated islands. The installation was made even simpler with Panorama’s Antennas professional bespoke cable looms which allow flexibility and ease of installation.

The antennas ensure communications for the Terrafix solution in the most challenging environments. Each vehicle has a rugged tablet in front that provides the vital mobilisation and ambulance’s processes and routing to and from the incident, and a tablet in the back that operates the patient report forms. In the future, these vehicles will have the powerful facility to stream live data from a hospital to the ambulance to enable remote medical care wherever the ambulance is! This option has been ensured by the LGMM series giving versatility and future proof communication in an installation.
